Thankful Thursday! September 10, 2015

Psalms 92:8.  "but you, O LORD, are on high forever."

To the One who knows me better than all and still loves me, I give thanks for:


My beautiful Preston!  18 fantastic years with him as our precious son!  Always such a pleasure, He is one of my greatest treasures!!

Pres makes me laugh!! 😂

Whitty staying in the car with me and chatting

First Park comes home for lunch, then Ren, then Chad, then Pres!  What a joy! :)

Lunch with LaMarr, Leah, Abe and Meadow -- can't wait til I have my own grandkids!  ;0)

My alarm had been going off for 3 minutes! Whitty comes over, turns it off, sits beside me and contemplates if he should wake me.  He said I was so warm and so sound asleep, he didn't want to disturb me😊, but he needed a ride to school (stinky 7:00 am classes!)!  hahaha!   He's so sweet!

Whenever I go into Gil's office, he always has time for me.  He stops whatever he's doing and gives me his attention.

“Sometimes I wonder if I’ve become so busy scheduling every moment of my life for success that I miss the one thing I long for most: time to live.

Time to walk hand in hand with my wife . . .

Time to lie on my back and watch the clouds . . .

Time to write about the stirrings of my heart.

Time to visit with those people across the street I’ve never met.

Time to pray—not during scheduled prayer time, but simply because I’m overcome with gratitude, weariness or joy.

Time to simply talk to God.

God had a plan, but His plan was about relationships, not achievements. He designed time for being more than for doing. My job requires a hunk of my time for doing. My calling is to find time in the midst of it all—just for being.

The stuff of real life is not on your “To Do” list.


Lighten Up!”
